Lil Wayne out-charts Elvis

Charts, Stats & Polls

Lil Wayne

Popular courtroom satirist Lil Wayne has just surpassed Elvis Presley’s record for the solo artist with the most ‘hits’ (ie appearances) on America’s Billboard Hot 100 chart since it began in 1958.

Weezy’s present hit-rate became 109, one higher than The King’s, by virtue of his having guest-MC’d (his phenomenal number of ‘featured artist’ credits being the reason for his Hot 100 supremacy) on rapper Game’s new single ‘Celebration’. And if that isn’t cause for a celebration, what is?

I should probably also commend the cast of ‘Glee’ – the ‘group’ of sorts that provide the TV show’s many, many, many ‘musical numbers’ each week – since they officially reign over the Billboard shortlist with 204 charting hits. But I won’t because the cast of ‘Glee’ just don’t count, in any given context whatsoever.
